Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe

Broccoli Stir Fry Recipe

There was a time I didn't use to like Broccoli and now it has become regular at home, most of the time I conveniently make Broccoli Soup, broccoli salad or a simple stir fry like I did with the Kathrikkai Rasavangi.  This time I decide to add tomato to bring a little tangy flavor, you can skip the tomato if you don't want to use but with or without tomato it's makes a good stir fry and goes well with just any thing.  


Broccoli - 1 floret around 350gms
Onion - 1 medium size
Tomato - 1 medium size
Green Chilies - 2
Garlic Cloves - 2
Cumin Seeds - 1/2 tsp
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 tsp
Salt - taste


1. Wash and cut the broccoli in small florets.  Chop the stems too if you prefer, I try to use stems.

2. Slice the onion, slit chilies and chop tomato, keep aside.  Crush or chop the garlic.

3. In a pan heat oil, add cumin let it crack.  Add garlic and saute until light brown

4. Add onion, chilies and saute until pink.  Add broccoli florets and saute for 2-3 minutes in medium flame.

5. Add salt mix well and cook in slow flame with lid on for a minute.

6. Add tomato and all spice powder give a good stir cover and cook until tomato mash well and broccoli gets cooked but still crunchy around 3-5 minutes. 

Have with it roti/paratha or dal rice/ sambar rice.

~ You can use sambar powder instead of red chili and coriander powders.
~ Skip the tomato if you wish.
~ One can add little Amchur/Dry Mango Powder instead of tomato.

Have a nice day ~~
